Information Systems, BBA
Every business today depends on information systems, whether it’s a customer relationship management system or an e-commerce site or a complex network of these and more. Decisions about how to use, build, purchase, or integrate these systems have great impact on a business. The Information Systems [IS] Major provides a sound foundation in information technology principles and practice. As an information systems professional, you can help an organization make the most of its technology. If you have a desire to take responsibility for technology, are logical, and like to solve problems, this may be a good career for you. Early career job titles include application developer or support, client services analyst, database administrator, and web developer, among others.
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Information Systems degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.)
The Information Systems program is a "gated" program, requiring admission by the Coles College of Business.
Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.
Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.
This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.
You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
